It is with heavy hearts, we announce the passing of our Mother, Helen, at the age of 84, on Sunday, August 4th, 2019. She was born on January 7th, 1935 in Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan, and spent many of her years in the Toronto area, before retiring to Beaverton, and then Midland, after the passing of our father, Ken in 2009.
Many milestones were reached in her life, including 52 years of marriage, to our father. Helen was predeceased by her husband, and our father, Ken, her sister Dorothy, and her brother Wally.
Her greatest joy was raising her family. Her three boys, David (Melinda), Darrell (Laurie), and Dan, and her daughter Linda. We, her many grandchildren, great grandchildren, surviving sister Irene Hamilton, her brother-in-laws Brian Northern and Robert Thompson, close family friends, extended family, and her wonderful dog, Benji, will miss her greatly.
Cremation has taken place, and a celebration of her life, will take place at a later date.
